Eau Claire, Wis—Silvermine Stone—the first brand of mortarless stone that created the category nearly two decades ago—now introduces its new Mortarless Stone Pillar Kits. Featuring simple, quick and cost-effective installation, the unique kits enhance the look of exterior posts and pillars.
Whether dressing up a porch, deck or creating driveway entrances and much more, the Silvermine Stone Pillar System allows you to integrate decorative pillars into any project quickly and easily. The unique kits provide nearly everything needed to construct an 18-inch by 18-inch stone pillar with either 36-inch or 48-inch height options in minutes—no measuring, cutting or calculating needed.
“Stone accents significantly enhance the look of exteriors, but can be costly and require additional masonry labor,” said Mike Borom, CEO, Silvermine Stone. “Our new pillar system offers the attractive look of real stone columns… but is easy enough for any general laborer or even a DIYer to install. No mortar or masonry skills needed, simply unbox and assemble using just a drill and level.”
Silvermine Stone Pillar System
For added curb appeal, the pillar stones perfectly match the Silvermine Stone Belterra® Collection of stone siding and are available in five of the most popular and on-trend color palettes:
For the finishing touch, choose a cap style and color. Two cap styles are available: a 22-inch flat cap that is ideal for topping off a pillar; or a 22-inch split cap that is designed to fit around a 6-inch post. Caps are featured in three popular colors: sand, slate, and brownstone.
Each pillar kit contains a pre-cut, ready-to-assemble polymer (no-rot) frame, frame assembly screws, pillar stones, stone mounting fastener screws and a pillar cap. To install, simply assemble the frame (around your post if applicable) using the included screws; attach the pillar stones to the frame using the included Silvermine Stone fasteners; then repeat each course until you’ve achieved your desired height. Whether you select a 36- or 48-inch height, the panels are designed to stack vertically. Finally, add the pillar cap to the top of the structure, using a bead of construction adhesive (not included).
Customized Stone Pillars
For those looking for project customization, Silvermine’s Pillars Stone are also sold by the box, each covering one foot of pillar height. Featured in five popular colors of the Belterra Collection, the panels are available in 18- and 24-inch widths. The 18-inch pillar stone fits 14 ¼-inch by 14 ¼-inch framed column, while the 24-inch pillar stone fits a 20 ¼-inch by 20 ¼-inch framed column. The panels feature interlocking corners for a clean, finished look and, like the kits, are designed to stack vertically to accommodate the desired height.
